Decreased level of thyroid hormone formed by pituitary is thought as hypothyroid disease and increased level of thyroid formed by pituitary is thought as hyperthyroid disease. Poorly treated or untreated maternal over thyroid sickness might have an effect on maternity outcome. The complicate health problems throughout maternity and baby area unit foetal and baby hypo or thyrotoxicosis and baby central glandular disease. Appropriate identification and treatment of hypothyroid and hyperthyroid disease throughout maternity time are of most important. Because as a result of thyroid disorder there will be many worse effects on both mother and child. Propylthiouracil and Methimazole can be considered as a drug which can treat thyroid disorder at the time of pregnancy and lactating period.

Hypothyroidism conjointly referred to as hypoactive thyroid or low thyroid. It happens unremarkably in the system in which the thyroid doesn't manufacture enough hormones. A number of its symptoms are less resistance power to consume cold, a sense of weariness, abdominal discomfort, depression, and heavy weight. Generally there could also be swelling from the part of the neck because of disease. Untreated hypothyroidism throughout maternity will result in delays in growth and intellectual development within the baby that is the main adverse effect of hypothyroidism [1-24].

Mostly the usual cause for hypothyroidism is just too very little iodine within the diet [25-37].

Hyperthyroidism is additionally referred to as overactive thyroid or high thyroid. It conjointly happens unremarkably within the system that gives excessive production of hormone by the thyroid. Adenosis is the condition that happens because of excessive hormone produced in pituitary. Thyroid disorder symptoms are different from one person to other person and should embrace illnature, joint pains, sleep disorders, heart problems, and sensitivity to heat, vomiting, thyroid expansion, and loss of weight. Hyperthyroidism is a condition which can result worse symptoms like confusion and a hot temperature and sometimes ends up in death. The alternative is gland disease, once the thyroid doesn't create enough hormones [38-51].

Mostly the usual cause for hyperthyroidism are Graves' disease, nodular disease, virulent benign tumor, swelling of the thyroid, consumption an excessive amount of iodine, and an excessive amount of artificial hormone. A less common cause may be a pituitary benign tumor [52-68].

Tests for thyroid disorders

Thyroid stimulating hormone test

In this test, the level of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone takes in to consideration. Decreased level of T3 and T4 thyroid hormone results into hypothyroidism. Pituitary gland stimulates the discharge of those hormones into the blood through Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH); therefore hypothyroidism disorder is outlined strictly primarily based upon your levels of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH).

Increase level of T3 and T4 thyroid hormone results into hyperthyroidism. Thus in diagnosis of thyroid disorder Thyroid Stimulating Hormone plays a vital role. If the value of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone is normal but the symptoms are still present, then go to the other tests [69-87].

T4 Test

If the value of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone is normal but the symptoms are still present, then T4 test should be done. The level of T4 thyroid hormone which is present in tissues and blood stream should be measured in this test. If the level of T4 thyroid hormone is less, then consider as hypothyroidism. Actually in hypothyroidism there will be high level of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone and low level of T4 thyroid hormone. But in hyperthyroidism, there will be high level of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone and high level of T4 thyroid hormone [71-88].


As a result, thyroid disorders in pregnant ladies will adversely have an effect on their children's sequent performance on psychological behaviour. In Some situations symptoms of thyroid disorder may be less in pregnant lady. The presence of high humor concentrations of pismire thyroid oxidase antibodies in seventy seven percentage of {the girls|the ladies} with gland disease shows the persistent response rubor was the foremost frequent reason behind gland disease in these pregnant ladies. Treating of maternal thyroid disease throughout maternity seems to be useful for the kid, even once treatment is insufficient as determined by measurements of thyrotrophic.

In general pregnancy, there's a physical increase in free tetraiodothyronine and a decrease in thyrotrophic and these changes are largest at the time the human sac gonadotropic hormone concentration peaks (approximately ten to twelve weeks of gestation). In our subjects, we tend to failed to observe this increase. Rather, there was a peak within the thyrotrophic concentration at regarding eight to ten weeks of gestation, amid a downward trend within the free tetraiodothyronine index. These results counsel that a very important role of the human sac gonadotropin–thyroid axis in healthy ladies is to extend the hormone pool throughout the primary trimester [89-98].


During pregnancy special considerations should be needed to manage the thyroidism disorders. If the special considerations are taken then the worse effects on the pregnant lady, child and infants can be avoided. Iodine deficiency is one of the reason that effect mother and fetal and infants. Iodine helps to develop the brain of fetal during pregnancy time. So Iodine should be taken sufficiently by the pregnant women as it helps to develop the brain of fetal during pregnancy time. As a result Iodine plays a vital role in thyroid disorder. Thus Iodine deficiency results into hypo and hyperthyroidism.
